Cap­tain Un­der­pants: The First Epic Movie (U)

Adapted from Dav Pilkey’s chil­dren’s books, David Soren’s com­put­eran­i­mated ad­ven­ture is like a pair of oft-worn pants: saggy and frayed in places, but struc­turally sound. The film of­fers enough puerile hu­mour to keep young­sters young au­di­ences snig­ger­ing with glee. Friends Ge­orge Beard (voiced by Kevin Hart) and Harold Hutchins (Thomas Mid­dled­itch) hyp­no­tise their mean-spir­ited head­teacher (Ed Helms) and con­vince him he’s a su­per­hero called Cap­tain Un­der­pants, who gal­li­vants around wear­ing just a pair of Y-fronts and a flow­ing red cape.

47 Me­tres Down (15)

Hor­ror thriller pits two sis­ters (Mandy Moore and Claire Holt), against one of cin­ema’s most tena­cious preda­tors – the great white shark. Un­like Steven Spiel­berg’s 1975 clas­sic Jaws or yes­ter­year’s The Shal­lows, this film sub­verts the usual damsel in dis­tress set-up by strand­ing his pro­tag­o­nists in­side a sub­merged shark cage with a di­min­ish­ing oxy­gen sup­ply, de­com­pres­sion sick­ness ... and sharks.
